Netanyahu Says Fox News Reporter's Claims on Embassy Move are 'False'

Visiting the Wall: According to a report by Israel's Channel 2, the USA advance team rebuffed a request from Netanyahu's team to accompany Trump while he visits the Western Wall.

Ahead of the visit, U.S. officials in Israel were busily organizing a visit to the Wailing Wall, located in Jerusalem's Old City, when they were approached by representatives for Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, requesting that the he be allowed to join the president for the visit.

Palestinian and other Arab leaders have warned the Trump administration that moving the USA embassy to Jerusalem would risk stirring popular anger and possible unrest, as the Palestinians view the city's eastern half as their capital and because of the city's significance to Muslims. "It will advance it by correcting a historic injustice and by smashing the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel".

If Trump does go to the wall, he will be the first incumbent USA president to do so.

On Monday, Fox News foreign correspondent Connor Powell threw more fuel on the fire when he tweeted, "Everyone I've spoken to in DC that has been briefed on the Jerusalem Embassy move says Netanyahu told Trump not to move the embassy at this time".

It's a very important diplomatic declaration that will be considered a unilateral move even before arrangements to restart the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Netanyahu told lawmakers from his Likud party on Monday that he fully supports moving the embassy. A Fox News correspondent had claimed the opposite: that the Israeli leader asked the U.S. president not to move the embassy.

The families of terror victims appealed to Trump, offering to meet with him and asserting that the Palestinian Authority incites violence by offering to pay terrorists in exchange for committing heinous acts against Israelis.

The American reportedly shot back "no" because this is "not your territory" and said it is part of the West Bank, sparking a shouting match between the Israeli and American teams.

But Bennett is snapping at his heels, afraid that Trump is not the same president who had "more than once lauded Jewish settlement throughout the Land of Israel and about moving the embassy to Jerusalem", but the man about whom he said, "Since being elected and to date, there has been a change in the spirit of things, and the sources of that change aren't entirely clear".

While out scouting the site with USA representatives, the Israeli team requested that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accompany Trump and his family to the wall.

White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, wasted little time in asserting that the highly-charged remarks were "not the position of this administration".

The US, like most of the worldwide community, considers Jerusalem disputed ahead of final-status negotiations. He will officially take up his role when he presents his credentials to Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday.

The new USA ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, departed from diplomatic protocol by visiting the Western Wall on Monday.

Israeli right-wingers have pressed Trump to stick to his pledge to move the embassy to Jerusalem, but the president has backed away since taking office, saying it was still being looked at. The Israelis then asked for a TV crew to film Trump live, which an American official. reportedly flatly rejected.

The diplomatic controversy erupted on the day the new USA ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, arrived to take up his new post.
